The duo with Olga Nosova (drummer and vocalist mostly known for her work with Moscow fusion band 
"Syncopated Silence" and post-punk band "Motherfathers") is one of the latest projects of veteran of Russian 
industrial/electronic/free improv scene Alexei Borisov and noticeably very fast-developing - their mind- 
boggling and powerful music is already highly acclaimed among the music lovers not only in Russia, but 
around the world ! 

The collaborative project was formed in April 2009 in Moscow. Paying homage to both experimental tradition 
of Alexei's countless musical reincarnations and Olga's instrumental experience, the duo embrace elements 
of weird free-form spoken word psychedelia, live electronics, minimalism, free jazz, noise, heavy acid, 
electroacoustic, dub and far too many different types of acoustic torture to even bother mentioning all of 
them! The music is highly improvised, so naturally Borisov / Nosova is collaborating with various musicians, 
video-artists, dancers, performers and poets from different countries, both in live situations and in studio 
environment: Anton Nikkila (Finland), Dave Phillips (Switzerland), Matthieu Werchowski (France), Dora Bleu 
(Canada), Thomas Buckner (USA), Tom Smith (USA), Jandek (USA), Anton Mobin (France), a_spirale (Italy), 
llya Belorukov (Russia), Sergei Letov (Russia), Korhan Erel (Turkey), Oleg Kornev (Russia/France), VTOL 
(Russia), Mitya Fedotenko (France), Alessandro Bosetti (Italy) to name just a few. 

Borisov / Nosova duo is touring extensively and taking part at different international festivals, exibitions and 
showcases. In 2009-2011 they performed in Russia, Turkey, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Germany, 
Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Netherlands, France, Israel, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belorussia, USA, Italy, Czech
